PARTYNEXTDOOR // Bad Intentions
PND is back with a punchy and relaxed flow, busy production and more rhythmic pondering of his most recent love affair.
Post Malone feat. 21 Savage // Rockstar
Rock meets trap. Malone’s raspy cries in his verse are complimented by a menacing instrumental and chillingly savage verse from 21.
Majid Jordan feat. dvsn // My Imagination
A hypnotic and soulful beat with gentle vocals and no gimmicks means this track fits snuggly into the PBR&B genre label.
Dvsn // Think About Me
Sensual, spacious and lofty with a hard-hitting beat. This creates a perfect bed for such gorgeous vocal delivery.
Daniel Caesar // Get You
Absolutely heavenly duet with instrumental excellence, emotive lyrics and singing reminiscent of the all-time great crooners.
Brockhampton // Gummy
Unrestricted and groovy production which allows each diverse member of the playful group to shine over an eerie crescendo.
Bryson Tiller // Run Me Dry
Subtle and captivating dancehall rhythm with compelling beat switch-ups throughout and an addictive looped sample. Big nightclub anthem potential.
SZA feat. Travis Scott // Love Galore
Slow paced classic boom bap production with melodic vocals and a lively trap feature from Travis shows maturity in SZA’s recent song-making.
PARTYNEXTDOOR feat. Halsey // Damage
An attempt at an Ibiza boat party song which doesn’t fully pay off due to Halsey’s annoying and whiny verse, but appealing nonetheless.
Gucci Mane feat. The Weeknd // Curve
Typical braggadocios talk of how women flock to them, but still a club-worthy beat with lots of potential Instagram captions in the lyrics.
